The latest pop song to be appropriated/massacred (depending on your
point of view) for the commercial dance market is Paul McCartney's
composition Silly Love Songs. This vocal arrangement, performed here by
Philippino Jenn Cuneta, has the writer's blessing, and can lay claim to
being the first of his songs to be treated in this way.
Those familiar with Positiva's output will recognise familiar features
in the bouncy bass line, a sprightly, lite-house rhythm, and a "come rain,
come shine" hook, all, of course, in the name of a good dance. Andy & The
Lamboy share writing credits with Sir Paul, and are responsible for the
radio edit. Meanwhile mixes from Stonebridge and Patrick
Alavi introduce a firmly pointed piano/bass riff and a full-bodied,
funky bass respectively for the club crowd.
One thing's for sure - Cuneta has a voice perfectly suited to commercial
or underground club music, and has a vehicle here to pitch her firmly
towards the charts.
